Strife: Veteran Edition is a great game with a fantastic storyline, and finishing this game actually warrants you legitimate bragging rights… at least around people my age. Seriously though, it’s challenging, the puzzles actually make the player think, and reliving this gem is as wonderful as playing it for the first time. Try it out, you won’t regret it.

Strife: Veteran Edition has a whole lot of love poured into it, and it's the proper way to remake a classic.

Strife stands as a monument to the old FPS genre, similar to games such as Doom and Quake. It's not going to pull any punches but if you can stand the heat this is a gem of a game.
Gaming History 101 (Dec 18, 2014)
Strife: Veteran Edition makes replaying this game about as easy as it’s going to get, provided you remember that this still has the Doom engine as its platform. I don’t think it will get more appreciation now than it did back then, but hopefully it will find an endearing experience to budding gamers and those that let it pass the first time.

If you played the original version of Strife, I can certainly recommend this because you'll likely really enjoy it. If you didn't, then there is nothing here for you, I don't think, at least nothing that you can't find elsewhere. This isn't a bad game; it's quite fun in places and I did enjoy it. It just fails to really grip me in any meaningful way, and I never really felt like I wanted to play it any longer than I needed to - even bad games sometimes have an attractive or addictive quality. Strife manages to be a good game in the wrong era and there's nothing wrong with that in itself, but for gamers today, if you want a nostalgia trip or a history lesson, this a chapter you can skip.
